Scanning QR codes at Union University

Hi, everyone! I just wanted to let you know about two graduate courses I will be teaching this summer.  Both are during the first summer term (June 4 – July 6, 2011).  The brief descriptions are below.  Feel free to email me about either course.

IDT 7078/8078: Mobile Teaching & Learning

This special topics seminar will be focused on the current landscape of mobile teaching and learning.  We’ll consider devices to support mobile teaching and learning, as well as the instructional strategies and apps that can support a mobile computing initiative.  Since this is a seminar, my plan is to offer a more open plan for course goals, so that you may investigate and spend time with a variety of topic of interest to you.  I plan to have a significant number of guest speakers from around the country via video conferencing highlight their programs and lessons learned.  This course will be completely online using synchronous conferencing technologies.  The course dates are June 4 – July 6, 2011.

IDT 8500: Evaluation & Synthesis of Research in IDT

This doctoral-level course will focus on academic writing.  We will work on the structure of scientific reports and how to write for academic audiences.  We will critique academic research findings and synthesize research findings into an original, coherent and structured document. This course will meet face-to-face and will have time allotted for students to read and write.  Their will be plenty of feedback.  The course dates are June 4 – July 6, 2011.


If you have questions about either of these course, I’d be happy to answer those. Feel free to email me.

3 Thoughts on “2 Graduate courses to consider

  1. Michael, will the synchronous set-up of IDT 7078/8078 allow for participation by non-students?

  2. Michael,

    I´d love to follow your course as a non-credit student. Would that be possible?
